Do you wish to be an entrepreneur? Have you started thinking about your liking business? Do you love baked foods? Yes, if you have interest towards breads, cakes, cookies and chocolates then a little bit startup advice can set your home baking business.

If you have always loved baking great tasting cakes and breads, you may want to take advantage of your hobby and talent to start your own home baking business. A baking business can be very profitable especially if you have a number of friends and relatives who always order cakes and pastries during parties and special events.

home baking business

The best thing about starting a baking business is you can indulge in baking while having the opportunity to earn from your efforts. You can operate this home based baking business from home and on a part time basis. If you are planning to start a baking business, here are some of the things that you may be interested to know about:

Requirements to Start a Baking Business

An oven and some sets of baking tools and equipment that you may already have at home will be good enough to start a baking business if you are just planning to operate your baking business at home or on a part time basis. If you decide to open a bigger baking business, however, you will need more and bigger equipment to accommodate to a larger number of clients. You must also make inquiries regarding licenses and certificates that you may need to operate a baking company. Baking business operators, for example, are typically required to secure a business permit and a health certificate. A background or training in the baking business will also be helpful if you are starting a baking business.

Getting Clients

You can start getting your first set of clients by encouraging friends and relatives to try your baked foods. You can even encourage your friends to order cakes from you whenever they have occasions in their home. A good way of encouraging people to order baked goods from your home baking business is to offer them cheaper but great tasting cakes and breads. The small network of clients that you have will inevitable grow as long as you continue to provide your customers with best tasting baked goods. When building and choosing a location for your baking company outlet, it will be important to choose a baking business location where there are a number of prospective customers who will buy your baked goods. In addition to this, remember that word of mouth marketing remains to be the best so better ask your friends, family members and even existing customers to refer your baking company to other people.

    I am in college and will soon be on my way to nursing school. I love baking and my mom keeps teasing me about starting a baking business and so does my boyfriend. Now if I do start my own baking business will I need a license right off the back to do it out of my home?

    You definitely need permits and licenses in most states. You need to be sure you live in an area zoned for a business, even if it's a home based business. You need to be sure there are no animals anywhere on the premises, that's a health code violation, and you can be shut down for it. You need a business license, and a tax ID number for both state and federal. A lot of suppliers for bakeries will NOT sell to you if you don't have these. Don't take shortcuts, and don't sell if you're not licensed. If someone gets sick from something you made, you will be sued a million times over if you're not licensed and insured. Liability insurance is a MUST. I speak from experience, I used to own my own bakery.

    Can you have a home based baking business in Florida? I've heard and seen varying replies to this question. I've heard, "No you can't," yet there was a guy on the today show who started his baking business at home in Florida, and is so successful he is now branching out into a store type location. Any idea which it is?
  • 81. Kara said on 1/3/2011 3:01:02 PM

    I live in Georgia and would like to know if I can turn my fairly large storage house into a bakery and it still be considered a home based baking business. It is located approximately 20 feet from my house. Also, should I establish an LLC for my home based business? One more question....if I live in a residential area how do I go about getting permission to operate my home based business?

  • 99. James expert adviser said on 3/3/2011 11:46:05 PM
    @Totka Neykova, yes you need to be certified to do this business from home. You need a 3 compartment sink, a hand washing sink and a separate floor washing sink. You also need stainless platform for your kitchen.

    @Lynn Harris, you need to have a license to start this business. Here is a guide to secure a permit in Atlanta, GA. If you have trouble then hire a consultant to complete this work for you. Finding buyer is must. There are couple of ways to it. Will you just take orders in a small amount then probably word of mouth will work best for that. You start partying at your home and show your works in those parties. You can also find regular gatherings in Atlanta and supply some free bakery to promote the business. If you wanna go for big scale then you need a website, advertise, contact local grocery store, gas stations, etc for the business.

Lately, I have seriously considered taking it to the next step, and creating a business. I have a unique idea, which would help to separate me (us) from the rest, bringing unique interest and additional profit. Currently, I am living in Sebastian, FL., on the river. If anyone is interested in possibly partnering, contact me at jomots243@aol.com I have business degrees, and experience opening and running new businesses, as well as building clientele. I could do this alone, but it would be much more fun to work with a partner. Looking forward to hearing from you! Keith

    I would like to know if even one of you has successfully started your business yet. The aticle doesn't even use proper grammar and I find the over-simplistic suggestions insulting, not helpfull; nothing was offered that isn't plain logic.

    In California, you cannot legally have a home baking business as it is against the health codes; anyone in any state should start by checking with their state or county health codes and small business bureau. And to those who haven't had any culinary training, unless you have an exceptional gift for pastries, it requires more than the compliments of family and friends to know you have what it takes to succeed.

    My business is "Helena's Homemade", I am located in Hempstead, NY (USA). I have started my business from home. We primarily sell cookies, although I also make mini pies, cakes, cupcakes, brownies, etc. Before I started my business I was a media buyer. I have decided that I want to get corporate clients. My concern is manufacturing and distribution. I have investigated commercial kitchens and delivery services, all of which are very expensive. Do you have any ideas for me?

    I live in Cleveland Ohio and would like too know what are the steps I need to take to start selling spring rolls. I have over 20 year in making spring rolls..
  • 191. chef saranjit singh sehgal beginner adviser said on 7/12/2013 9:33:43 AM
    Mr.@Robert Ruiz, Thanks for sending your question. I apologies for the delay in replying to your mail as I had a very busy schedule these days.first of all please write me in details about your business.I have not understood yr question.Sir, you wrote that from 20 yrs you are making spring rolls but where were you selling yr products or you were working in some company/hotel and working as a chef doing preparations for the hotel.Any way what ever it may be well if you want to sell Spring Rolls first you must try to sell Chinese Momos which is a latest trend in snacks food where as In India and other Asian Countries every person likes to eat Momos with red chilli sauce and green chilli sauce for which you need only chinese steamer vessal and small cooking range along with the momos you can sell spring roll but it should not be in chinese style but slight Indian Style eg. pan cakes should be bit thick and not thin when fried it should be very crispy.Serve with green chilli sauce home made by grinding the fresh red chillies or green chillies adding little vinegar,pinch salt,little ginger powder plus adding freshly boiled and ground spinach in very small quantity plus small qty of jagrey/ grain sugar make a paste give the sauce with spring rolls/momos and can sell on the road side path of streets/markets whre you find maximum girls/womens/childrens shopping in the market/schools/college these are the right places if you want to sell in the shop you have to put more efforts you have to display big banners showing we sell hot chinese momos and spring rolls/you can also sell indian and chinese fritters for which i will give you the recipe in th next mail.First try this formula which i told you. regards MASTER CHEF SUNNY SEHGAL,NEW DELHI, INDIA. e.mail. sunnysehgal428@gmail.com you can write me directly also.

    my name is Michelle. I am looking to start a business from my home. I live in southern New Jersey, in Camden county, USA. I would like to make cakes/cupcakes, cookies, and brownies. Although I have an Associates Degree in Baking Pastry, I don't know where to start to get my business off the ground. What are the steps I need to take and what licenses will I need for my area? Is it better to have a website business than sell from home or at fairs? What are the pro and con's of the two? With this business, I would be able to do what I love and earn an income from home as well. You can e-mail me at mlfelder24@yahoo.com and/or call me at 856-405-9158. Thank you and eagerly awaiting, Michelle.
